Six members of Colombia’s navy were arrested on charges of helping the criminal gang known as the Rastrojos, the Associated Press reported. The men were arrested on the Pacific coast where the criminal group moves drugs from Colombia to the United States by go-fast and semi-submersible. The Rastrojos operate throughout the country, buying coca base and cocaine from rebel groups and other intermediaries. They co-opt members of the navy and other security forces to allow for safe passage of their product.
